Leeds United manager Neil Warnock says it was Aidy White’s love of the club that was a big pulling point in his decision to stay with Leeds.
White has agreed a new three-year deal at Elland Road after it looked like he would be leaving this summer after running down his contract at the end of June.
The 20 year old had turned down the offer of a new deal at Leeds earlier this summer but Warnock, the player and his representatives have agreed a deal that all parties are happy with to keep him at Elland Road.
Speaking on Yorkshire Radio, Warnock said, “We have been chasing him for a while now to put pen to paper. He loves Leeds United and it was a big pulling point.
“It hasn`t been a matter of us backing down or him backing down, we both wanted to do the same and get a contract he is happy with and he deserves.
“He now has three years. He wants to try to establish himself regularly and contribute to a successful Leeds United.
“He can cover so many roles. I think further forward he needs to try to score more goals but defensively he is quite good.”
The news broke prior to the first pre-season friendly at Farsley Celtic, with White playing the opening 45 minutes.
